Intent to Submit 


NQF requires measure stewards or developers to submit an Intent to Submit form at least three months prior to the designated cycle’s measure submission deadline. The Intent to Submit form will notify NQF with the measure steward or developer’s readiness to submit measures for endorsement consideration and will allow adequate opportunity for technical assistance prior to submitting measures for evaluation.

The Intent to Submit form requests the following information from stewards/developers:

  • Planned Submission Date (cycle and year)
  • Submission Type (Maintenance or New)
  • Measure Title
  • Measure Description
  • Measure Type
  • Level of Analysis
  • Data Source
  • Numerator and Denominator Statements
  • Testing Information
